Marina Beach Tours

Located on the Bay of Bengal in the city of Chennai, natural Marina Beach extends for just over 8 miles (13 kilometers) from close to Fort St. George to Besant Nagar in the South, making it India’s longest natural urban beach. 

While not an ideal swimming beach, Marina Beach makes an excellent spot for people watching in the cooler hours of the morning and evening, when the main stretch near Triplicane becomes a flurry of activity. You’ll see kids flying kites, locals playing cricket and munching on snacks from the food vendors, open air markets and fortune tellers hawking their trade to passersby. If you get there early enough in the morning, you can watch fishing boats heading out to sea.

Practical Info

The waters along Marina Beach have strong rip tides, making swimming quite dangerous.
